Company history

Henningsen & Steckmest Yacht and Dockyard (Scalar Yachts) was founded in 1958. The company's founders, Hans Jürgen Heningsen and Franz Steckmest, were already experienced craftsmen at the time and their first order was a 15 metre Viking passenger boat for a local transport company on the River Schlei.

A year later, Henningsen & Steckmest built its first sailing boat, the Scandinavian traditional boat Kairos. In the '60s, her companions built several boats according to the serial designs of the Danish Slaby Larsen and the Scandinavian Kairos.KR-yachts . designed by the Bremen architect Anton Miglitsch.

The company did not have a full production facility until 1964, and contracts were sealed by a handshake.

In the 70s, Rolf Steckmest joined his father's business - he studied abroad for a long time and in 1973 created the sailing Scalar 28 for his shipbuilding exam. The yacht was a success and was made of wood and then fiberglass. More than 28 hulls were built and in 1979 the first regatta was held on these yachts. The Scalar range was expanded while the yard continued to build custom motor yachts.

In 2006 the architectural firm Nissen/Laboe was involved in the design of the Scalar 40. In 2008, the Scalar-Speedster, an examination work by Malte Steckmest, was born.
